Tocqueville, Biotechnology, and the Future of Human Liberty

In this lecture presented by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, Peter Augustine Lawler offers some of his projections on how biotechnology will alter some basic human freedoms and what this will mean for western democracy. With humor and biting insight, Lawler envisions a time when scientific advances have allowed us to eradicate genetic disease, design our offspring, and meticulously balance our mood. If this is indeed a likely scenario, Lawler feels that the implications within a democratic society are wide-reaching and difficult to predict. This talk is available on MP3 download.

Democracy in America

Alexis de Tocqueville's renowned analysis of American democracy still has relevance today. In 1831 de Tocqueville was sent to America by the French government to study the U.S. penal system, but his real aim was to observe a democratic republic firsthand to see if such an entity could function with dignity and humanity. His travels, which took him to the cities of the Northeast, to the frontier and the Great Lakes, down the Mississippi and through the South, showed him a great deal about the United States. In 1834, he wrote Democracy in America, in which he examines the advantages and pitfalls of democracy, the conditions and conflicts among the races, and the movements that grip the country.
